    My favorite pavilion in Epcot. Sake bar is awesome. don't forget to try the plum wine or the Chu Hi. must be 21 years of age to consume. Staff is super friendly and enjoy chatting about Japan.

    Otakus abound in the anime and Kawaii areas and you'll find no shortage of unique sweets, housewares, and clothes. The restaurants offer great sushi and Japanese faire.

    My anime lovers and Japanophiles will love this slice of Japan for shopping for toys, clothes, and snacks and also if you want good food to eat. If you are studying Japanese, cast members will chat!

    Go inside the ground-level store to pick your own oyster and get your own pearls! The store also sells a wealth of animé and other traditional Japanese goodies.

    The little sake kiosk across from the big staircase to Teppan Edo has awesome flavored sake cocktails. The pineapple one is the best. So refreshing!

    We ordered the ume sampler. It was just ok. We said we didn't like cucumber and half the sampler had cucumber. The service is excellent and atmosphere great. Still looking for good sushi at Disney.
